It works great in a racing situation where you take things apart on a regular basis and replace them. But they ARE NOT suitable for install and forget type.
I don't install Poly unless the customer absolutely insist and supply the parts and I leave no warranty on it.
Front control arm bushings, inner tie rod bushing and transmission mount. I have all seen them go bad in a year or two in that they gets elongated and produce more slop than any genuine bushing did.
